Boger, Adolf

Written by ECA Review


Adolf Boger passed away peacefully at Coronation Health Care Center on Aug. 14, 2021 at the age of 80-years-old.  

Adolf was born in June of 1941 in Castor Alta., the third of four children of Elsie and Henry Boger.

He lived and worked on the family homestead until 1970 when he moved to town.  Despite moving to town, he continued to farm with his brother Danny where he kept on with his passions of farming and his cows.  

Adolf’s other hobbies included curling, fishing and camping when he wasn’t busy on the farm.  

In 1985, he wed Shirley Haddow of Fort Saskatchewan, Alta. and in 1986, they welcomed a daughter, Ginnene.  

He enjoyed watching his family and extended family grow up and expand.  

In March 2018, his first grandchild Rylee was born and February 2021 the addition of Harper. These girls became his pride and joy.  

Adolf always enjoyed the company of his granddaughters and was excited to have them visit or receive the many photos and videos of them.

Adolf was predeceased by his brothers-in-law Herbert Steinwand, Arthur Engel and Ian Haddow.  

He is survived by his wife Shirley; daughter Ginnene (Doug) Nichols; granddaughters Rylee and Harper Nichols; sisters Lilly Engel and Violet Steinwand, brother Danny (Louise) Boger; sisters-in-law Liz Owens and Karen Haddow and numerous nieces and nephews.

 A private family gathering will take place to celebrate his life.
